Over the last 10 encounters between these sides, the Astros have won six.

Just like it always has been, Shohei “Shotime” Ohtani is having himself a bonkers season. The reigning MVP has carryied his side this entire season.

Being one of the sport’s few two-way superstars, Ohtani leads his side with the highest batting average (.266), most home runs (30), highest RBI (82), and the most runs created (90.20). He also has the best ERA (2.58), most strikeouts (181), and the most pitches per inning (15.9). Stellar stats such as these are why Ohtani is once again the front-runner in MVP conversations.

The Astros entire roster as a whole has performed spectacularly, but a few of the standouts have been Yordan Alvarez and Justin Verlander. Alvarez has the highest batting average (.294) and the most home runs (31) in the organization. Verlander has an ERA of 1.84 which is the best in the entire MLB.
